The moment the organization and message of a propagandist movement begins to be orientated according to their tastes it becomes incoherent and scattered. The cause for which we fought during the War was the noblest and highest that man could strive for.
That this is not understood by those among us whose wits are supposed to have been sharpened to the highest pitch is only another proof of their vanity or mental inertia. They are something entirely different. Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people.
On the other hand, they quickly forget. In regard to the part played by humane feeling, Moltke stated that in time of war the essential thing is to get a decision as quickly as possible and that the most ruthless methods of fighting are at the same time the most humane.
Here the art of propaganda consists in putting a matter so clearly and forcibly before the minds of the people as to create a general conviction regarding the reality of a certain fact, the necessity of certain things and the just character of something that is essential.
For the intellectual classes, or what are called the intellectual classes to-day, propaganda is not suited, but only scientific exposition. Taken all in all, its results were negative.

Its notions are never partly this and partly that. The very principle here is a mistaken one; for, when they came face to face with the enemy, our soldiers had quite a different impression.

It confined itself to a few themes, which were meant exclusively for mass consumption, and it repeated these themes with untiring perseverance. In this respect also the propaganda organized by our enemies set us an excellent example.
Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side.
The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another.
Such was the only possible attitude to adopt towards war propaganda in the life-or-death struggle. If this principle be forgotten and if an attempt be made to be abstract and general, the propaganda will turn out ineffective; for the public will not be able to digest or retain what is offered to them in this way.
